Students: Want organic produce delivered?
Featured Events | Sep 10, 2012 | Nicole Gesualdo
If you want to know exactly where your zucchini and lettuce and tomatoes come from, this is your chance. Fordham’s own CSA — which stands for “community-supported agriculture” — is enrolling participants in its fall organic food co-op.
You have the opportunity to join other Rose Hill students, faculty and staff in getting six to eight pounds of locally grown organic vegetables delivered to McGinley every week. Could be an interesting alternative to the traditional produce bins at Modern Food Center on Arthur Avenue.
